Sheep, toes and cheerios…all things I counted with my babies while they were young. As a parent, I was always looking for new and creative ways to stimulate their brains and begin to teach the basic building blocks they’d need for future success in life. Domi Domi Numbers provides another way for parents to count with their children in a fun and engaging way.
Domi Domi introduces children to numbers and counting slowly, giving them plenty of opportunities to learn each number before moving on to the next level. Play begins very basic by having the child tap the item underneath the number. The narrator says the number to reinforce. Next, a narrator counts the items aloud while the items they tapped on the previous screen appear. The child can then tap on each item while the narrator counts again. Now, the child uses their finger to either trace the number or trace a path from the number to the number of items that match the number. Play continues in a similar manner for each consecutive number up to 10. The games and activities get progressively more difficult as they child progresses through the game.
Domi Domi is as entertaining as it is educational. Toddlers will love the cute and cuddly Domi Domi characters. The shapes and colors are very basic and vibrant so they really appeal to young children. The way this app presents and teaches numbers and counting is very age appropriate. I love the way that the app starts out slowly and builds in momentum and complexity as children master each level. The tracing activities also work on hand-eye coordination. Also, the activities are short enough to hold a toddler’s attention so they don’t lose interest. Domi Domi Numbers is the perfect addition to those sheep, toes and cheerios to help those kiddos blossom into amazing mathematicians!
